FOOD ALLERGIES

Food allergies are the most common cause of depression notes Joan Mathews-Larson, PhD

The most common cause of depression and most mood disorders, including many schizophrenics, are brain allergies caused by foods that we are allergic to according to Joan Mathews-Larson, PhD, author of Depression-Free, Naturally: 7 Weeks to Eliminating Anxiety, Despair, Fatigue, and Anger from Your Life.

She notes that getting people to avoid foods that they are allergic to has provided the most amazing depression recoveries that Dr. Larson has seen in more than 30 years.

SSRI’s & SUICIDE

Lilly scientists pressured to alter records for fluoxetine to change suicide attempts to ‘overdose’

Fluoxetine (Prozac) and other serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) increase the risk of suicide. The Boston Globe wrote an article talking about this in 2000. The article noted that…

“The company’s internal documents [Eli Lilly and Co.], some dating to the mid-1980s, as well as government applications and patents, indicate that the pharmaceutical giant has known for years that its best-selling drug could cause suicidal reactions in a small but significant number of patients.

“Internal documents show that in 1990, Lilly scientists were pressured by corporate executives to alter records on physician experiences with Prozac [fluoxetine], changing mentions of suicide attempt to “overdose” and suicidal thoughts to “depression.”

SSRI’s & SUICIDE

Fluoxetine (Prozac) caused 3-fold increased risk of suicide compared to placebo

Fluoxetine (Prozac) and other serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) increase the risk of suicide. The Boston Globe wrote an article talking about this in 2000. The article noted that…

“Three years before Prozac [fluoxetine] received approval by the US Food and Drug Administration in late 1987, the German BGA, that country’s FDA equivalent, had such serious reservations about Prozac’s safety that it refused to approve the antidepressant based on Lilly’s studies showing that previously nonsuicidal patients who took the drug had a fivefold [5-fold] higher rate of suicides and suicide attempts than those on older antidepressants, and a threefold [3-fold] higher rate than those taking placebos.”

SSRI’s & SUICIDE

Fluoxetine (Prozac) causes 1 in 100 people to develop severe form of anxiety and agitation

Fluoxetine (Prozac) and other serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) increase the risk of suicide. The Boston Globe wrote an article talking about this in 2000. The article noted that…

“Lilly’s own figures, in reports made available to the Globe, indicate that 1 in 100 previously nonsuicidal patients who took the drug in early clinical trials developed a severe form of anxiety and agitation called akathisia, causing them to attempt or commit suicide during the studies.”

The article later notes that:

“Yet the problems with Prozac were known even before it was introduced to the US market. Figures in a 1984 Lilly document indicated that akathisia, the severe agitation that can lead to suicide, occurs in at least 1 percent of patients, a level considered a “frequent” event, and as such must be disclosed in a company’s product literature and package inserts. But there is no such disclosure in Prozac’s US literature, and it is not clear whether the FDA panel charged with approving Prozac simply overlooked or did not have access to certain critical data of Lilly’s.

“As a result, researchers say that most US doctors do not know to warn patients of the potentially dangerous effect which, according to published literature on the topic, can be alleviated with sedatives or by going off the drug.

“German regulators, who eventually approved Prozac for use in that country, require a warning label about the risk of suicide and suggest the concurrent use of sedatives when necessary.

“Akathisia is listed in Lilly’s US product literature, but as an infrequent event in Prozac users. No mention is made of its potential relationship to suicide.”

SSRI’s & SUICIDE

‘Probably 50,000 people have committed suicide on Prozac’ said Dr. David Healy

Fluoxetine (Prozac) and other serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) increase the risk of suicide. The Boston Globe wrote an article talking about this in 2000. The article noted that…

“Using figures on Prozac both from Lilly and independent research, however, Dr. David Healy, an expert on the brain’s serotonin system and director of the North Wales Department of Psychological Medicine at the University of Wales, estimated that ‘probably 50,000 people have committed suicide on Prozac since its launch, over and above the number who would have done so if left untreated.’”

[And this was as of the year 2000.]
